USDA officials visit Negros Occidental

Bacolod City (28 September) -- Trade Director Dennis Voboril, Counselor Emiko Purdy, Agriculture Attachè David Wolfe and Agriculture Specialist Pia Ang, all of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), met with Gov. Joseph G. Marañon and other key officials of the province through the Office of the Provincial Veterinary (OPV) to look into the livestock industry of Negros Occidental recently.

The guests are particularly interested in the Provincial Animal Genetic Improvement Project, one of the Seven-Point Priority Agenda for Development under the Agricultural Productivity and Food Security Program of the present administration.

The USDA delegation recognized the program and the effort of the Provincial Government in improving its livestock industry and welcomed the use of new livestock semen that would come from their breed through Artificial Insemination (AI) to further upgrade the industry.

A 10-minute presentation on the Dairy Programs as well as insights and learnings during the Maryland State Fair Agriculture Exhibit last August 24 to Septemeber 3, 2007 was given by Dr. Renante Decena.

Dir. Voboril and his group also went with Dr. Decena and his OPV staff on a site visit to a Dairy Cooperative in Brgy. Codcod, San Carlos City. This cooperative was provided financial assistance worth P100,000 by the Provincial Government.

The group also visited Mambukal Resort in Murcia and the Panaad Park and Sports Stadium in Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City. (Capitol News/PIA) [top]
